Obama Supporting State Department Official: Hey, I Sort of Watched Hillary Clinton's Top Aides Scrub All Damaging Benghazi Files Out of the Official Records

Big, if true.

The way they'd impeach his claims is by saying that he's an embittered former employee, angry about his own failures in maintaining security in Benghazi, rightly censured for his failures, and now making things up for payback.

On the other hand, this Maxwell fellow said he had nothing to do with Benghazi security and was scapegoated so that higher-ranking officials who were in charge of security could avoid accounting.

He also donated personally to Barack Obama and was (is?) an Obama supporter -- so the idea that he has a partisan political motive is unlikely.

As the House Select Committee on Benghazi prepares for its first hearing this week, a former State Department diplomat is coming forward with a startling allegation: Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to "separate" damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

Hillary Clinton? Scrubbing incriminating documents?!

Ridiculous. I've never heard something so absurd in all my life!

According to former Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell, the after-hours session took place over a weekend in a basement operations-type center at State Department headquarters in Washington, D.C. This is the first time Maxwell has publicly come forward with the story.

I find it intriguing that this operation -- which I'm sure we'll hear was all by-the-book -- was conducted on a weekend, when few people are around, in a basement, where there are fewer passers-by.

At the time, Maxwell was a leader in the State Departmentís Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, which was charged with collecting emails and documents relevant to the Benghazi probe.

"I was not invited to that after-hours endeavor, but I heard about it and decided to check it out on a Sunday afternoon," Maxwell says.

...

When he arrived, Maxwell says he observed boxes and stacks of documents. He says a State Department office director, whom Maxwell described as close to Clintonís top advisers, was there. Though the office director technically worked for him, Maxwell says he wasnít consulted about her weekend assignment.

This is another sign that you're doing things on the Up and Up: When you keep things secret from key managers.

"She told me, 'Ray, we are to go through these stacks and pull out anything that might put anybody in the [Near Eastern Affairs] front office or the seventh floor in a bad light,'" says Maxwell. He says "seventh floor" was State Department shorthand for then-Secretary of State Clinton and her principal advisers.

"I asked her, 'But isnít that unethical?' She responded, 'Ray, those are our orders.'"

You'll have to read Sheryl Attkisson for the rest.

I'm sure you'll come away from it asking the same question I'm asking:

Why do people keep telling such monstrous lies about Hillary Clinton!?!?!
